What's New: The strange tale of Canada’s Israeli lobby
by Reg Whitaker | January 26, 2017
In August 2016 the Green Party of Canada concluded its annual convention. Elizabeth May, the party’s leader and sole elected MP, met the media, but not with the usual bland partisan clichés. Instead she complained, 'I have to say I’m pretty devastated.' Soon she was even talking about quitting the leadership altogether, walking away from the small but influential young party she had personally infused with an enviably disproportionate national profile.

A friend's daughter set out on January 19th from Montreal for Washington to join American protests timed to coincide with the inauguration of Donald Trump.

Here we are. Inauguration Day for Donald Trump. We are through the dystopian looking glass. And now 'resistance' isn’t just something that would be nice if it happened. It is a necessity. From working people, from students, from community members, and yes, from artists. By any means necessary. Trump took the White House for two reasons. 1) The failure of the Democratic Party. And 2) The mobilization of bigotry.
